The field for the 2019 Belmont Stakes has been drawn. Tacitus, the likely favorite or possibly co-favorite with Preakness winner War of Will drew post 10 on the outside. War of Will is right next to him in post 9 setting the stage for the test of champions and final leg of the Triple Crown races. The draw in the Belmont is not nearly as significant as in the Kentucky Derby. You have a smaller field, and a nice long run to that first wide turn. Both Tacitus and War of Will should have time to get over and save some ground.
Here is the field for the Belmont:
